DRAKE Plastics Ltd. Co. based in Cypress Texas, USA, and DEMGY group headquartered in Saint-Aubin-sur-Gaillon, France, have formed an alliance to provide customers a broader range of high-performance plastics solutions for challenging applications.

Designated the “Liberty Alliance,” the partnership draws its name from the close historic ties between the two countries.

DRAKE and DEMGY are leaders in high-performance polymer solutions in their regions. Both have years of application expertise in high-technology industries including aerospace, medical, mobility and semiconductor manufacturing. The synergy from their distinct application, production, and market coverage capabilities offers customers fast access to a wider spectrum of reliable, cost-effective engineering solutions.

A key element of the alliance is DEMGY’s appointment as the preferred distributor in France for DRAKE’s semi-finished machinable shapes extruded from specialty PEEK and polyketones, Torlon polyamide-imide grades and other high-performance polymers. DEMGY will also offer turnkey solutions in these materials for mutual customers.

“With engineering locations in both geographies, the Liberty Alliance opens our mutual products and services to customers in France, and to international customers,” said Steven Quance, DRAKE President & Founder.

According to Pierre-Jean-Leduc, DEMGY Group CEO, “The alliance brings our customers greater applications expertise and access to high-performance semi-finished shapes in a size range and level of quality unsurpassed worldwide.”
